#DevHack: Create SharePoint library with the Microsoft Graph

November 26, 2020

When you are reading this, you are looking to create a SharePoint library from the Microsoft Graph. It is straightforward but a bit confusing because you will have to use the lists endpoint. When you are a SharePoint developer, we all learned that a list is not the same as a library, and lists get created under the /lists/ URL path. Document libraries are not.

Info Documentation to create a new list

When you want to create a new document library, you can perform the same call as mentioned in the create list documentation page instead of using the genericList template value. Use the documentLibrary value.

}
